    AMD has just let us know that you can pre-order your brand new Ryzen Gen 2 CPU today and it releases on April 19th. There are four different flavors with the 2700X being the top dog. Also, all of the new processors come with the Wraith Cooler inside the box. You can grab the 2700X at Amazon and there are lots of X470 motherboards at Newegg. Use our links and pre-order your new gear now!

    Delivering high-performance computing and innovative new features, 2nd gen Ryzen desktop processors are built to create faster and smoother computing experiences for PC gamers, creators, and hardware enthusiasts.

    All 2nd gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors are supported by the new AMD X470 chipset, the most advanced, optimized, and efficient chipset to-date for socket AM4. This chipset comes with a free download of the new AMD StoreMI storage acceleration technology to combine the speed of an SSD with the capacity of a hard drive into a single, fast, easy-to-manage drive.

    Going to review StoreMI at all? Guessing this is their old RAM drive software?

    If it's truly that much of an improvement over Ryzen 1, I'll be using it for my next build either late this year or spring of 2019.

    Out of curiosity I've often wondered how accurate these pre-release leaked benchmarks actually are. Are they accurate 50%, 75%, 90% of the time? If true that is a great jump.

    That 2600x looks like a real contender over an 8700k unless Intel hits us with some good price drops.

    Okay, I'm sold.
    When I get home I'll preorder the Ryzen 2700x.

    Now to figure out which motherboard and fastest ram I can use. Any advice on MOBO and ram?

    Going to have to use my trusty old R9 270 till the newer 1180 nVidia cards come out.
    So Imma feel what it's like driving a supercharged Corvette while suffering from untreated glaucoma.

    Nice.

    Just wait for the [H].

    Then we'll get the synthetics and real world gaming, comparing stock, clock for clock, and max OC for each.

    At least that's what I've come to expect.

    Not expecting a whole lot over Round 1 clock for clock but 4.2GHz looks drool worthy.

    I wait until I have hardware in hand to make any judgement about it. Intel always says shit like "The Core i7 Super Turbo Turkey Puncher Edition III is 11% faster than the previous generation!" and cite a single benchmark showing that. In reality, it's more like 3-5% at BEST in every other test you can think of. Even some leaked benchmarks don't always pan out as being entirely representative of the final product so again, we'll see. If true, that's a serious win for AMD on a minor revision of a CPU architecture. I hope it is true as AMD could really use the good PR and some more sales success.

    So no real benchmarks, but feel free to pre order. Didn't the gaming industry prove this is a terrible idea? But you'll always have the fan bois who will order whatever they release.

    Anyone who preorders and regrets it should only blame themselves.

    I'm a little surprised that some of the Asus motherboards are branded RoG. Looking closely at the box, under the AMD logo it even says Crossfire. Probably the rules of Nvidia GPP get tricky since AMD makes things that both do and do not compete with them.

    Is there a memory QVL for the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) available? I'd really like to pre-order this motherboard with a 2700X, but I can't find a memory QVL on the ASUS website. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm upgrading from an old AMD 8350!

    I can't wait for the reviews of these things. Didn't plan on replacing my 1600x but I probably won't be able to resist if they're a pretty good bump

    Looking at the X470 boards listed on NewEgg, I might have to get the Biostar X370GT5 or hope they pull out a similar updated board. I need those legacy PCI slots.

    I reserved my on Microcenter's site. No payment required. If reviews are bad, I can just not go.

    Same could be said about the 6700k and 7700k. Or the 4770k to 4790k from Intel....

    There were plenty of Intel only people who did. Just stating the obvious that both Intel and AMD do it. So this shouldn't be a shock.

    Either way I am looking forward to the reviews. In Kyle we trust!

    I don't think people are drooling, but in my case I hope AMD does well with Ryzen 2. We all need competition to drive innovation, so I hope Ryzen 2 gives Intel some more competition.

    Also people need to realize. the 2700/2700k is 8c/16t CPU. If they can hit 4.4ghz on the it, it is really damn good. Just Compare the CPU to the Intel 8core CPU and see how far that CPU can overclock. Also look at the price comparison. Just my 0.02c

    GPP only applies to graphics cards. Anything else can still be branded under AIB's respected "Gaming" sub-brands.

    Waiting to see what the next-gen Threadrippers are like...

    I'm most interested in how any x370 vs an equivalent x470 stack up with the same chip. I'm guessing barely any difference for most common loads.

    Very hyped about this... only reason I'm not pre-ordering is I have a trip planned right after launch. I'm doing a new build, it's past time. That Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Gaming x470 is the sweet spot! Going 2700X, I see it as $30 more for the Wraith cooler, which is all I should need for 4.3 with XFR2 and who knows maybe 4.5?

    Two thoughts:
    1) If I had a 2600K vice 2500K I still would not be upgrading (those extra 4 threads make a difference now but not so much in 2011)
    2) Would be nice if AMD had a 1080Ti equivent (or better) to have a pure AMD CPU/GPU build.

    PCI? I need ISA, and EISA!
    How many Bungholio marks would that give?

    Pre-ordered.

    Now waiting on motherboard reviews.

    Why pre-order? Because it would be my luck it somehow does well at crypto mining and sells out overnight.

    Terrible anology.

    Even if it is a 0% gain over Ryzen, getting an 8 core cpu for $300 is still a safe bet.
